pastor's credit card. she wrote zero in the space but says -- >> i put $6 on the table. >> reporter: the pastor called applebee's to complain. >> they wanted me fired, the server fired, my manager fired. >> reporter: chelsea was fired. instead of worrying about getting tips, she can use some job-hunting tips. applebee's acknowledged her dismissal saying our guests' personal information, including their meal check, is private. and neither applebee's nor its franchisees have a right to share this information publicly. the pastor seems to have a change of heart. >> that was a lapse in my judgment. i apologize for that. >> i am sorry that i violated your privacy in posting your signature. >> would i ever do that again? no, i would not ever do that again. >> but you offended me. you offended me. you offended your server. >> reporter: the question is,
5:01 am
what would jesus tip? and on that subject, god's not tipping his hand. jeanne moos, cnn. >> so what have you learned from all this? >> i learned not to be writing no note on a receipt. >> reporter: new york. >> thank you so much for starting your morning with us. much more ahead on "cnn saturday morning," which starts right now. good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. it is 8:00 on the east coast. 5:00 am out west. thanks so much for starting your day with us. we start right now in alabama, and the desperate waiting game for police and the parents of one little boy. the 5-year-old is now being held underground for a fifth straight day. this, while police wait outside his makeshift prison, negotiating with the person who grabbed him off a school bus earlier this week. victor blackwell is keeping an eye on this city in midland city, alabama. victor, good morning to you. have authorities continued to talk with this suspect
5:02 am
throughout the night? any progress? >> reporter: good morning, randi. we're waiting for an update that will come at noon eastern today. we know authorities and negotiators were here, overnight, as they have been around the clock since this whole thing started tuesday. we can tell you the big difference from this night than any other in this ordeal, the temperatu temperature. the temperature dipped below freezing for the first time during this ordeal. we know from sources close to the negotiating that this bunker is heated. we also learned more about how this bunker was built from a neighbor of the man accused of shooting a bus driver on tuesday and snatching a kindergartner and taking him into, essentially, this hole in the ground. listen. >> we would always catch him at odd hours of the night running around. it was at random times. it would never be on a schedule at all. he would just do random stuff that humans would not do, a normal person would not do.
5:03 am
>> like what? >> walk up and down the dirt road with his gun, sometimes he would be working on the bunker. we didn't know what it was then but now we realize it was the bunker he was working on, but at the time we knew nothing about it. >> reporter: and we're still waiting, again, for details about what exactly is happening inside that bunker. the most important thing we have received from local authorityie that they have no reason to believe that that 5-year-old, this kindergartner inside this bunker with jimmy lee dikes, has been harmed. >> do we have any idea why he took this child? >> the shooting victim, charles polen, the bus driver, his route would end every day right at the end of the road that leads up to jimmy lee dikes property. he walked that property with a gun and flashlight, often protecting his property. he was agitated by that driving right at the edge of his road, turning the bus around at the
5:04 am
end of the route. we know that charles polen, according to this friend, actually tried to make amends and take the man eggs from his home and homemade jellies to try to smooth things over. that apparently did not work. and this may have actually been the catalyst for what happened on tuesday. but we're still waiting for a lot of details from authorities, randi. >> victor, thank you very much. and now to sports and new allegations aimed at yankees star alex rodriguez. new report from espn says rodriguez was personally injected with performance-enhancing drugs. this happened, the report says, as recently as last year. we now have this from a-rod's spokesman. in regards to the new allegations made in today's espn outside the lines story, we can say that they are not true. there is an investigation. security conference in munich, germany. >> we would be prepared to meet bilaterally with the iranian
5:05 am
leadership. we would not make it a secret that we were doing that. we would let our partners know if that occasion presented itself. that offer stands, but it must be real and tangible. and there has to be an agenda that they're prepared to speak to. >> biden also plans to sit down with a key syrian opposition leader. it would be the highest level meeting with sources trying to overthrow bashar al assad. more than 2,200 people have died in the civil war. it will be an early spring, it turns out. that is the prediction from punxsutawney phil. >> so you faithful, there is no shadow to see. an early spring for you and me. >> oh, yes. everybody was cheering that one after much fanfare and goofing around, the groundhog came out and did not see his shadow, or
5:06 am
at least he told his handlers in groundhogese. now it's back in the hole for phil until next year. if you live in ohio, you may not think spring is on its way. just take a look at all the snow that fell in the cleveland area yesterday. the area could get several more inches of snow this weekend. alexander steel is with us again. so, cleveland is pretty snowy, but punxsutawney is promising early spring. >> the hoopla around him, that's unbelievable. he only has a 39% accuracy rate. but he's very cute. maybe that's the barometer. no pun intended. chicago seeing an inch, inch and a half already, cleveland, cinci, light snow dusting the ground. temperatures certainly cold enough to support this light moisture coming through. winter weather advisories delineated here in purple.
5:07 am
even in kentucky and tennessee, once again a little slippery, a little ice potentially mixing in. western maryland, west virginia with the lift, the air moves and kind of gets lifted, it cools further and brings out as much moisture as possible. so there's more moisture there, three to five inches potentially for today. all those advisories from this morning till tomorrow morning. big picture on the whole. pretty quiet around the country except for this little snow. the upper level low that will develop off the coast. forecast radar beginning today. watch what happens for tomorrow. an area of low pressure develops off this carolina coast. this is only one computer model. they kind of are differing. watch from sunday in through sunday night, if this low gets a little bit closer to the coast, there is potential for more snow here in southern new england. it is bringing boston snow on sunday night. boston's only had, randi, 8 1/2 inches this season, 14 inches
5:08 am
less than average. we'll have to see if this plays out. we'll have to see what punxsutawney phil can do with that. >> we will see you, alexandra. thank you so much. >> sure. hitting a major milestone friday, closing above 14,000 for the first time in more than five years. alison kosik has the story. >> okay, randi, party like it's 2007. the dow closed above 14,000. it's a milestone that we haven't heard since 2007. no hooting and hollering, like in year's past. maybe it's the been there, done that attitude. upbeat economic data. january jobs report was seen as good enough even though investors really expected better. also, consumer confidence and manufacturing rose, pushing stocks over the edge. but the momentum has been there for a while. the dow has been powering higher ever since it hit rock bottom back in 2009. it fell as low as 6,500.
5:09 am
so, hitting 14,000 is a reminder of the comeback. most analysts we talked to said it doesn't really mean much. instead, they've got their eyes on the next big one. >> these are certainly nice, round numbers. i personally think it will be more of an event once we break through that october 2007 all-time high. that is more of a milestone than just going through a thousand marker which we, again, have done before. >> and that all-time high of 14,164 we're watching for now. randi, back to you. >> all right. thank you very much, alison. woe've got much more ahead this hour. here is a look at what we've got, coming up. are you ready for some football? no, guys, not you. i was talking to the girls. holly robinson pete explains why more women are watching the big game.

good morning, washington. nice shot at the capitol building. 11 minutes past the hour now. glad you're with us here on cnn saturday morning. let's talk about the scandal that's captured the nation's attention, how a 22-year-old man tricked notre dame football star manti te'o into believing he was not only a woman but the love of te'o's life. if you're asking yourself how it could have happened, we want to ask yourself this. he appeared on katie couric and shared a voicemail. >> i was just calling to say good night. i love you. i know you're probably doing homework wi
5:14 am
homework or you're with the boys but i just wanted to say good night. >> ronaiah tuiasosopo told tr phil it was actually him. he asked him to do lennay's voice to prove it was him. he agreed to do it but only behind a privacy screen. >> hey, babe. i'm just calling to say good night and i love you. i know you're probably doing homework or with the boys or grubbing but i just want to say i love you and good night. >> dr. phil asked him to do the voice again, this time leaving a voice mail from his home phone while a producer from the show watched. >> hey, babe. i'm just calling to say good night. i love you. i know that you're probably doing homework with the boys or grubbing, fatty. i just wanted to say i love you and good night and i'll be okay. i'll be okay tonight. i'll do my best.
5:15 am
um, yeah. >> the three voice analysts said that tuiasosopo's voice matched the one. he also said there was no malice in pretending to be te'o's girlfriend and also says that he fell in love. listen to how invested he was in this relationship. >> for me, ronaiah, i was hurting. it hurt me. like it hit me like a brick wall. it was like, whoa, like i've given so much into this. and i realized right then in that moment that i poured so much into lennay that i, myself, was getting nothing. and look what i was left with. i was crying. i was hurt, emotionally. all kinds of things just took over. right then and there, i made the decision i can't do this lennay thing anymore. >> when asked why he did it to begin with, tuiasosopo said the hoax had roots in sexual abuse that he endured as a child. blackberry reveals a new

street journal" and "new york times." "house of cards" the show stars kevin spacey as a manipulative and devious house majority whip in washington's cut-throat world of politics. all 13 episodes available to stream now. a special look for you now at monday mornings, the medical drama, which airs in our sister network tnt attempts to pull back the curtain on life and death decisions that doctors make in the e.r. guess what, it is based on a book based on cnn's dr. sanjay gupta, who made a behind the scenes video for us. take a look. >> welcome to chelsea general. this is the emergency room. it's a trauma center. >> get out of my way. >> clear. >> place like this can get multiple traumas at once. this is the sort of place where they all end up. multiple trauma bays, lots of action in this area.
5:24 am
but you remember this from dr. tyler wilson comes in with the entire team of chelsea general hospitals to make it all happen. that's what this hospital is all about. so it's a shooting day here at chelsea general. and it's a single-level set as you might imagine. there are ways we can make it multiple levels. for example, elevator over here that goes straight through. you go through that elevator you're suddenly on a different floor. are these real? >> they could be. >> okay. anything could be real. sorry. to my favorite place at chelsea general. the operating room. this is an operating room that you're about to see where we could actually perform surgery. we wanted the entire room to be real. so nothing in here is out of place. nothing doesn't belong. this is what a real operating room looks like.
5:25 am
this is a microscope that we use to perform surgery. surgeons are able to move this microscope all around, focus in on different parts of the head. if i had to do surgery because someone needed it on the set, i could do it right here in this room but chelsea general is like any other hospital and sometimes complicat complications occur. when they do, people are held accountable here in room 311. >> all right. let's get started, shall we? >> this is the room that very few people know about and even fewer people get to see. it's room 311. our characters often sit in the same seats. for example, tye and tina sit over here. big presence in the back of the room. this is the place over here that you really never want to be. if you can avoid it. there's literally this walk where the doctors hear for the first time that they're the ones
5:26 am
that are going to be in the hot seat and they come to this podium over here. it's a glass podium. people can see their body language. the only person who really sits in the same seat every time is dr. harding. he is the boss. he is the only person who can see the entire room. he can read everyone's expressions. that is critically important. the ultimate goal of 311 is to make sure that we learn from mistakes. this is how medicine and science moves forward. the worst thing of all would be that a mistake occurs, no one learns from it. room 311 makes sure that doesn't happen. >> that is good drama. our inside man, the one and only dr. sanjay gupta will have an exclusive look inside the writer's room tomorrow morning on sanjay gupta, m.d. don't miss the big premiere of monday mornings monday night at 10:00 eastern on tnt. first, an fbi raid is a full-blown ethics inquiry next? one of the most powerful members of the senate is defending

5:31 am
that goes down into that bunker. the white house says there is no doubt about it. the deadly attack on a u.s. embassy in turkey was an act of terror. it killed a turkish security guard and injured a turkish journalist. authorities say this man blew himself up outside the embassy. he is known to u.s. intelligence officials and was a member of a radical left wing group in turkey. number three, former california governor jerry brown now has to decide whether a member of the manson group should be set free. he was sentenced to murder along with charles manson back in 1972. kyung lah spoke with his attorney. >> i think the governor should respect the work done by his parole board. that hearing lasted about five or six hours. they took into account everything about bruce and they
5:32 am
didn't grant him parole as a favor. they didn't grant him parole on a whim. they considered it very carefully. >> the parole board recommended parole for davis three years ago, but it was blocked by then governor arnold schwarzenegger. number four, 60 harvard students have been forced to temporarily withdraw from school after being linked to a cheating scandal at the university. harvard is releasing details of their investigation into the incident that first came to light back in august. 125 students allegedly cheated on a take-home exam at harvard. number five, the resignation of secret service director mark sullivan. sullivan served with the agency for 30 years, protecting five different presidents. he was promoted to director in 2006. the end of his career, though, was clouded in controversy, including a scandal involving secret service agents and prostitutes ahead of a presidential summit in colombia. one of the most powerful

members of the senate may face a probe by the chambers ethics committee. it wants to know more about trip that is robert menendez took to the dominican republic as a guest as one of its biggest donors. the donor's florida offices were raided by the fbi. susan candiotti is following developments for us. >> randi, we have now learned more on this week's fbi raid on the offices of one of senator menendez's big campaign supporters. the fbi's interest in florida eye doctor did not begin this week. what scrambled agents to obtain a search warrant, in part, was when a shredding truck showed up at the doctor's office, a law enforcement source tells cnn. the fbi has not commented on why it removed boxes and boxes of material from the complex, simply calling it law enforcement activity. agents from the department of health and human services were
5:34 am
also on hand for the search. dr. melgan, a long-time friend of senator bob men endez helped to bank roll his campaign as well as others. he has a stake in a company called icssi. the company has a contract reportedly worth millions to manage security and operate expensive scanning equipment in the dr. but a dispute over whether it unfairly shut out competition has put that contract on ice. at a senate foreign relations subcommittee last july, senator menendez seems to be throwing his weight behind his friend's company. >> you have another company that has american investors that is seeking to -- has a contract actually given to it by the dominican -- ratified by the dominican congress to do x-ray of all of the cargo that goes
5:35 am
through the ports, which have been problematic. and for which in the past narcotics have been included in those cargo. and they don't want to live by that contract either. >> the senator's office says he has always tried to bring attention to drug trafficking, adding in a statement, stemming from the growth of narco-trafficking is a key challenge in the region. a fight from which senator menendez will never back down. now he has an even more powerful role. as the new chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. as for dr. melgan, we called his attorneys to ask more questions about his businesses, but we haven't heard back. in a previous statement, his lawyer said they have no idea why the fbi has an interest in the doctor. randi? >> susan candiotti reporting for us. susan, thank you. next, legal analysis on two big crime stories. 16 years later, a new development in the unsolved jonbenet ramsey case.

murder of jonbenet ramsey, a stunning revelation is just coming to light. a colorado paper reports a grand jury voted to indict the young beauty queen's parents in 1999 but the district attorney felt there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute them. let's bring in cnn contributor
5:40 am
and legal analyst paul callan. it's interesting. we've follow this had case now for so long. how big of a deal is this new headline? >> well, you know, to lawyers it's a very big deal. and i think to most people it would be a very big deal. here we have one of the most highly profiled and covered murder cases, you know. it's right in the top in the last 50 years. and a grand jury hears the evidence in the case in boulder, colorado, votes to indict the ramseys and the prosecutor never reveals it. he never hands the inindictment up to the court. he puts it in his back pocket and walks away. that's a real shocker, i think. a d.a. has the right to appear in court and say there's not enough evidence to support this indictment. i want to move to dismiss it, in a very public proceeding. but to do it secretly, in a high profile case, that's very, very unusual, randi. >> how, though, do these two, the grand jury and the d.a., how do they see the evidence so
5:41 am
differently that we ended up this way? >> well, first of all, bear in mind that a grand jury essentially works on a standard of proof that's very low. it's just probable cause. more likely than not that something happened as opposed to beyond a reasonable doubt, which has to be proven at the time of trial. so the prosecutor here may have said, well, there was some evidence to suggest wrongdoing, but not enough to prove evidence beyond a reasonable doubt. now, in reading precisely what went on here, the d.a. had a big problem in that they indicted both of the ramseys for aggravated child endangerment, but they couldn't break down who did what. of course, when the case gets tried, each person has to be proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. and they just said something really bad went on in that house, the parents were there. they're both responsible. common sense but not proof in a court of law. >> we know that pat ramsey passed away. what does this mean for
5:42 am
jonbenet's father, john ramsey? anything? >> no. i think in the end -- no, other than something that will be of great interest for a couple of days until the story passes. i would add something else. subsequent dna analysis in the case seemed to suggest that the ramseys were innocent and had no involvement. there was dna analysis done that wasn't available in the '90s and it seemed to exonerate the ramseys. >> right. >> but nonetheless, this is hurtful to his reputation, that this would come out. >> i want to turn to another case that's been making headlines. we've been talking about it this morning. prosecutor in that small texas town shot dead in an employee parking lot, a block away from the courthouse. witnesses say the gunman was wearing mask -- the gunmen were wearing masks and black clothing. they jumped in a getaway car. but authorities have no leads. have you ever heard of anything like this? >> i have to say it's very rare to see a prosecutor attacked or
5:43 am
assassinated in connection with a case he has been prosecuting. there has been an uptick in recent years in attacks on prosecutors. even given that uptick it's still very, very rare. defendants are actually more likely to attack their own defense attorneys than prosecutors. they know that the heat is going to come down on them if they attack a prosecutor. and they also know prosecutors are just doing their job. but given that, with terrorism cases, with some organized crime cases, and this prosecutor, by the way, had been the chief of the organized crime unit in the dallas district attorney's office before he took this job. he had some very -- he prosecuted some real bad guys, some meth dealers, drug dealers, some of the -- drug cartel people. lot of suspects here if this is an assassination case. but we simply don't have enough evidence at this point to know. >> a friend of his spoke with david fitzpatrick and said that he had feared for his life before mark cassey, the victim
5:44 am
in this case, went out three or four different doors from the courthouse, never using the same door on different days. you were a prosecutor. does that surprise you? >> what surprises me is that he wasn't given extra security, if that was the case. i have to tell you, a lot of people would be surprised to know that even prosecutors who prosecute murder cases -- i prosecuted many, many murder cases and i've never had any security. you know, the head d.a. might get security in a big city, but the guys who are trying the cases don't unless there's a specific threat. now here, if this assistant d.a. was so worried about his safety that he's doing this, going out separate doors and being secretive and carrying a gun, i'm wondering why the office didn't know about it and why there wasn't extra security provided. but i'm sure we'll find out more facts that may explain this as this investigation continues. >> paul callan, nice to have you weighing in on both those stories. >> nice being with you. >> enjoy your saturday. >> you, too, randi. >> thank you. in other crime this week,
5:45 am
stories range from sex secrets to o.j. drama. here is your week of crime in 60 seconds. while a hearing on gun control was taking place on capitol hill, a shooting was unfolding in phoenix, arizona. police say arthur douglas harmon shot three people in an office building, one of them fatally. the suspect's body was found thursday and said he died from a self inflicted gun shot wound. o.j. simpson in trouble again, freen prison. the former football star failed to pay half a million dollars in taxes to california and the feds, according to liens filed against him. a 15-year-old who performed at the presidential inauguration was shot to death tuesday in chicago. pen pendleton was at a park after school when a gunman opened fire. jodi arias is on trial in phoenix for shooting her boyfriend in the face and stabbing him 27 times.

5:49 am
it is a cultural icon now 47 years ago. of course, i'm talking about the super bowl. seems like it's less about football than commercials and those half time shows. holly robinson peete joins me from new orleans, the site of this year's super bowl. good morning. so nice to have you on the program this morning. >> good morning. i'm thrilled to be here. >> and what a great seat you have there in new orleans. not surprising that you're a football fan, of course. you're married to former nfl
5:50 am
quarterback rodney peete. i also love football, too. i think a lot of women love to watch this gachlt i love the minnesota vikings, of course. >> right. >> why should people watch? why should women watch? >> well, listen. first of all, women are watching and not all of them are watching for the super bowl spots. i grew up a fan of the philadelphia eagles. i'm from philly. my dad bled eagle green. i learned the game at his knees. it wasn't until i met and then married my husband, quarterback rodney peete that i learned about the x's and o's, which really got me into the chess match of the game. i'm a little obsessed. you don't have to go as far as i am. i'm crazy football mama. you can really just know a couple of things and actually enjoy the game. >> i often sit there and ask my husband, what did that mean? what was that call? what are we waiting for? eventually i guess i'm learning a little bit more and more. women are becoming a bigger and
5:51 am
bigger part of the audience. if you look at the numbers in 2002, 36% of super bowl watchers were women. last year that number was 46%. 51 million women. why do you think more women are watching? is there -- why this renewed interest and growing interest? >> well, i do think there's an interest in the show. the show is just getting bigger when you have half time acts like beyonce. you're going to draw a lot of women. there's that. but there are women who understand football more than most people think they do. certainly us football moms whose kids play on friday night lights, all kinds of things that they know about the game coming up from pop warner, we lace the cleats and we know things. there's a bigger interest just because the game is so much bigger now. >> yeah. >> but, you know, everyone watches the super bowl and there's so many fun things for everyone, kids included. >> it's a family event. some people might say the women, they just watch to please their
5:52 am
husbands or their boyfriends. you don't buy that, do you? >> well, listen, i have to say that, you know, it is sometimes nice to know a couple of things about the game. you don't want to scream home run during the game, for instance. >> that would be zblaufl it's a touchdown. certain things you want to do. my husband loves to watch football with me. i think it's important that you kind of get into something that your man is into. it doesn't mean you have to. sorry, i'm struggling with crazy new orleans wind. but i think it's really fun. it's fun if you show some interest in what he's interested in as well. >> certainly. let's talk about the food. you're known as the master of ceremonies for home gating. what exactly is home gating? >> well, i am the spokesperson for the nfl's home gating campaign. it's essentially tailgating at home. on the weekends, we watch football. football, family, food and fun. it's a great time. someone called it the last american campfire, football
5:53 am
sundays, to gather round, enjoy your family. but we do all kinds. there are so many great products they have now at, to have the best home gating party you could ever think of. you know, it's a lot of fun. it's a great time to connect. and i'm absolutely thrilled to be the nfl spokesperson for this campaign. >> i like the idea of tailgating at home. it sounds a lot safer. >> well, yeah. >> what's your favorite super bowl dish? do you have one? >> philadelphia cheesesteak nachos. nice and low cal. that's my go-to dish on sundays. i break it out when the eagles are trailing, say, in the second half. i'll bust out my nachos and hopefully that will get it going. there are so many things that you can make. it's fun just to hang out and be with your family. >> i have to say, you surprised me with that one. what's your prediction for the game? >> oh, wow! listen, i just predict that they
5:54 am
both better win, because woef been here with my husband in 2005 where we lost. and it's the worst feeling in the world. you get rolled up off the field. i still get the shakes when i see confetti for that time. i have to give the edge to baltimore, even though i love the story, i can't believe this is his tenth start. but i think the edge is going to go to baltimore with the experience of the headquarter back. >> i trust you because you know football. we'll see. holly robinson peete, thank you so much. >> it's going to be a great game. >> it is going to be a graim great game. thank you. thanks for joining us. catch our take on the biggest sporting event in the country. what it means to the city, how it became such a cultural phenomenon and more. kickoff in new orleans, a cnn bleacher report special today at 4:00 eastern time. alex rodriguez, in trouble again. yankees slugger is in the middle of another investigation into banned substances in baseball. so, what's he saying about the new allegations?

5:56 am
one of my favorite foods in istanbul, called hamsi. the ingredients are so simple, olive oil, lemon. >> that's right. turkey is blessed with great waters, really good fresh fish seasonally, in the hands of a master, something like a jedi knight in the kitchen. they're protectors of something serious. and this is the back story of a place like this. it's the guy in the kitchen who keeps it all going. >> here we go. what is this? >> this is seoul fillets. they're just folded up like that. >> you wouldn't object to a little lemon juice. >> no, never. >> wow! >> you saw the guy bring the coffee in from the outside, yeah? once again, specialization, you

i'm randi kaye. it is 9:00 on the east coast. 6:00 am out west. thanks so much for starting your day with us. we start in midland city, alabama where police have been waiting patiently for five days now, waiting for a suspected gunman to release a 5-year-old boy he's holding in an underground bunker. this man, 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes. we're starting to hear why he
6:02 am
may have killed a bus driver earlier this week but we still don't know why he grabbed a child from that bus. victor blackwell. good morning again. how are investigators actually communicating with this guy in the bunker? >> reporter: good morning, randi. this is really bizarre. however sophisticated setup. we have an animation based on what a neighbor tells us this bunker look like. there is a pvc pipe that goes from the road that leads up to jimmy lee dykes property that goes all the way to this bunker past the mobile home, past the red container, next to his home. through that, they are communicating. it's just as important to mention what authorities do not want to communicate to jimmy lee dykes. they have said to the media several times not to show live tactics, anything that they're doing as they approach the home. they have also not given us many details because they don't want to acknowledge at a time taat a
6:03 am
acknowledge at a time d -- agitate dykes. there would be no other reason not to give details to us, because they didn't want to get them to dykes, randi. >> do we know why dykes shot that bus driver? the bus driver was protecting the children, but why did he do that? and why did he take this child? >> police have not given us a motive. we've spoken with a man who has lived here his entire life, has been a friend of the bus driver, charles polen, for at least 20 years. and he says that this man, jimmy lee dykes, was anti-government, anti-authority. and he saw that school bus coming on to his property as a form of the government. listen. >> i think he's anti-government, you know, mentality was that he
6:04 am
just considered a school bus or anything from the government a threat. that was an infringement on his rights, his property. if a tire got over on that land, that was his. >> and he says, again, once that tire came on to his land, he saw that as a threat. many of the neighbors here say that at times jimmy lee dykes would walk his property line with a shotgun in one hand, flashlight in the other and threaten anyone or anything, even the animals that crossed on to his property line. so, this is the type of person that has been described to us, randi. >> victor, thank you very much. we'll check back with you later on this morning. in texas, we're hearing a dallas area prosecutor who was gunned down in broad daylight outside of a courthouse feared for his life. that's according to a close friend of mark hassey. his friend says he didn't say why he felt threatened. >> he said, you know, colleen, there are three exits to the
6:05 am
courthouse. i go out a different exit every day now. and i have my gun drawn. and he said that when he came out, he would look both ways. >> donors have raised nearly $65,000 to help capture hasse's killer or killers. in illinois, a convicted killer mistakenly released is back behind bars this morning. stephen robins was supposed to be transferred from chicago back to the indiana prison where he is serving a 60-year sentence. investigators aren't saying what led them to robins hiding spot. to sports now and new york yankees star alex rodriguez, facing new allegations that he has been using performance-enhancing drugs. earlier this week he was linked to a miami clinic that dispensed banned substances. he got personal attention from the head of the clinic and that
6:06 am
he actually injected rodriguez himself. a-rod spokesperson says this is not true. these allegations made back last year. remember, he admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs ten years ago. speaking of doping, commissioner roger goodell says he expects the league to begin testing for human growth hormone next season. details of the appeals process are still being worked out. goodell said yesterday in his annual state of the nfl address in new orleans that he thinks a deal is coming soon. now to security concerns of twitter. around 250,000 accounts were compromised by hackers. they gained access to user names and e-mail addresses. twitter security chief says they stopped one attack as it was happening. they believe the breach may be linked to similar ones by suspected chinese hackers on

6:09 am
proposal and insist that they vote on it right away. >> reporter: but congress hasn't passed a comprehensive immigration bill in nearly 30 years, despite several attempts. >> we will fix the problems created by illegal immigration. >> reporter: including one championed by president george w. bush. >> this is something that has so many moving parts, so many potentials to fall apart. we've seen for 25 years this hasn't been able to go through. so the odds are not in its favor for this thing getting through. >> reporter: the biggest sticking point this time? giving undocumented immigrants legal status. opponents call it amnesty. >> legalization also has the problem of encouraging more illegal immigration. we've tried this before. in 1986 we granted immigration to 3 million people and now we have 11, 12 million illegal immigrants here. >> reporter: for any immigrant on probationary status could earn a green card. senate group plans to provide a bill to the senate judiciary

6:15 am
nearly 7 in 10 in a recent poll said they approve of the job she's doing as america's top diplomat. and two-thirds said they had a favorable impression of her. there was a partisan divide in both polls with only a minority of republicans giving her a thumb's up. if she becomes a politician again, we could see those sky-high numbers come down a bit. she shouldn't be in any rush to make up her mind, says cnn political analyst paul begalla. >> she's not going to commit to running when in her heart she has not decided to. she has the time, she has the support. there's no need to return into 2016. >> if she does run, our own cnn/orc poll indicates the obvious, she would be the front-runner for the democratic presidential nomination. but we're getting ahead of ourselv ourselves. let's let clinton enjoy some down time, at least for a month or two. randi? >> for a month or two, absolutely. cnn political editor paul steinhaus

6:20 am
super bowl? was it detroit, miami, dallas or los angeles? the answer is los angeles. the game was held at the los angeles memorial coliseum in 1967. green bay beat kansas city 35-10. thanks for playing along on that one. >> no matter who wins the super bowl this weekend, history will be made when two ultra competitive brothers faceoff for the biggest contest in the nfl. john harbaugh, coach of the baltimore ravens, challenges his younger brother, jim, head coach of the san francisco 49ers. on the subject of family rival ry, i spoke with another pair of competitive brothers in the nhl, eric and jordan stahl. i asked about the challenges and whether jordan turn ed down a huge offer on the pittsburgh penguins to play on the same team as his brother. >> that was definitely a big part of it. i wasn't feeling too comfortable signing a full extension with the penguins and, obviously, if
6:21 am
i had signed that, the opportunity to play with eric would kind of go away. i kind of held off on that and, you know, next thing i know, i'm moving on to raleigh and i was able to come down here and kind of get the same contract, which was nice and be able to play alongside my brother. >> eric, how do you feel about that? >> yeah, pretty unique how it all worked out. obviously, not easy decisions for jordan in the midof him get ing married all at the same time. there was a lot of things going on. and he -- you know, he had to make a decision. and for me, obviously, for us being brothers, i wanted to play together, wanted to play, you know, the game we love together on the same team. and then everything that happened after, him getting traded to our team and everything kind of work ed out. it's been exciting to have him here. you know, get the season started together. >> so, jordan, when you both were playing on different teams, did you feel, was there a
6:22 am
rivalry, even if you weren't playing against each other? was there a sense of competition? >> absolutely. i mean, when you're playing your brother, no one wants to lose, whether it's brother or sister growing up, for us growing up, everything was competitive and, you know, even all the way up to the nhl, it was really competitive, every game we were on each other and no one wanted to lose. it made it a lot of fun and elevated both our games. >> you have two other brothers, jared and mark also in the nhl. do you talk about anything else at the family gatherings or holidays? do you think there's more pressure because all of you are in the same business? >> hockey does get talked about a lot. you know, my dad is involved and -- well, both my parents. dad likes to talk hockey.
6:23 am
and we try and sway the conversation, get together to other areas. it usually ends up back to hockey. it's what we all do. it's what we all love. and, you know, it's some interesting conversation but it's a lot of fun. and pretty unique we're all in the same industry together and a lot of stories, that's for sure. >> i want to ask you both, as we look ahead to the super bowl, do you have any advice for the harbaugh brothers, coaching at the super bowl and even for their parents perhaps, jordan? >> that's tough. you know, all the way to the finals as well. me and eric met in a conference final and i don't think my parents could really even watch. it would be tough to see that all the way into the super bowl. but two great coaches, obviously. they did a great job just to get there and just enjoy it, obviously. it's always fun to play against your brother, but to be at that level and to be in that game, it
6:24 am
will be a pretty special moment for that family. >> what do you think, eric, is it more pressure on the parents than the two coaches? >> i think the coaches will be wrapped up in their game plans and strategy and everything else that goes with it. the parents, it's definitely tougher on them, you know. you kind of -- you're in a win or lose situation. regardless, they're watching the super bowl with two of their children playing in it, that's pretty special and pretty phenomenal. like jordan said, the two of us playing against each other in the conference final was difficult. we cut off communications before the series started but went right back after it was over. and i'm sure that's the same for their family. >> all right. guys, it was great to see you. great to chat with you. thanks again for sharing your story. >> thanks for having us. >> thank you. and a super bowl programming note, cnn is live in new orleans with our take on the biggest sporting event in the country. kickoff in new orleans, a cnn bleacher report special today at 4:00 pm eastern time. a man who spent four years
